AWARDS POLL (PLAYER OF THE SEASON, HERO OF THE SEASON, VILLAIN OF THE SEASON, AND MOST IN NEED OF REDEMPTION)
- Back to Basics: In a departure from recent seasons, Survivor: Gilbert Islands will be going back to where it all began. There will be no tribe switches, no hidden immunity idols or advantages, no Ghost, Redemption, or Exile Islands, and no loved ones competing together. Just 16 strangers looking to outwit, outplay, and outlast the others for a million bucks.
Format wise, this season follows the exact same format as Survivor: Borneo and Survivor: Australian Outback, with two starting tribes with eight members each, no tribe swaps or Hidden Immunity Idols, and a merge at the final ten. However, unlike those seasons, deadlock ties are NOT broken by past votes and are instead broken by rock draw unless it is the final four, where the tie is broken by a firemaking challenge.
